PHP-GTK.eu End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the PHP-GTK.eu community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

New layout on the official website of the php-gtk (http://gtk.php.net/)

Good day,

I changed the official website of the php-gtk at http://gtk.php.net/

  • Now it is multi-language.
  • For now the site is in English and Portuguese Brazil.
  • Today we have few links, but I hope that the community help us make improvements.
  • 5361 files were changed for me, including the manual files which now has four formats for download.
  • Next week I shall provide a page where you will know how to help the project.
  • With the release of PHP 7, I will start the development of php-gtk 3.

I ask those who want to publicize your software, to send screens and a description in Portuguese and English so I put on the official website.

Thank you

Site upgrade on 2013-05-01

The PHP-GTK community site was upgraded from Drupal 5 at long last, after it got hacked with minimal damage in April. That long overdue upgrade was an occasion to update both Drupal core and contrib code and the site custom code to more recent versions and higher quality/security levels. It is always humbling to revisit one's code 5 years later and see how what seemed like a good idea one day may appear like something one would never have written, in retrospect.

Damage and recovery

New repository for PHP-GTK

Although the main PHP-GTK site at http://gtk.php.net/ does not (yet ?) make mention of it, development of PHP-GTK is still active, but is using a more recent infrastructure, having moved to Github like many other projects.

Undocumented php-gtk methods.. Fortunately help can be found!

Hello,

We all run in php-gtk site to seek documentation for different methods or classes but often there is no helpful description there. Also the try and error approach is not always what you want if you are in a hurry.

Fortunately you can use other web sites that refer to gtk for other languages in order to get help.
